California Lectures presents An Evening with Amy Bloom on February 23, 2011, at 7:30 p.m. at the Crest Theater in downtown Sacramento. Bloom will be in conversation with Pam Houston, discussing her journey as a writer and how her work explores the human condition, from the double-edged nature of sex and romantic love, to the complexities and passions of family and friendship. Her trademark humor and dazzling prose are found throughout her recent collection of short stories, Where the Love of God Hangs Out, and her novels and magazine writing.

The bestselling author’s novels include Love Invents Us and Away; her short story collections include Come to Me, A Blind Man Can See How Much I Love You, and Normal. Bloom has won the O. Henry Award for short story writing and nominations for the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award. In addition to writing prize-winning works of fiction, Bloom has written for The New Yorker, The New York Times magazine, and The Atlantic Monthly and has earned a National Magazine Award.

Bloom’s newest collection, Where the God of Love Hangs Out, weaves together several stories to illuminate the changes that occur from love and loss. Each story features a different aspect of love and pain, passion and disappointment all while capturing deep human truths. Her recent bestselling historical novel, Away, is the stunning story of Lillian, whose husband and parents were killed in a Russian pogrom. A 22-year-old Jewish immigrant, she arrives in New York in 1924 in search of her missing three-year-old daughter, Sophie. It's a sweeping saga of Lillian's past, her endurance and rebirth.

Pam Houston is the author of Cowboys Are My Weakness, Waltzing the Cat, and A Little More About Me. Her stories have been selected for the Best American Short Stories of Century, the O. Henry Awards, and the Pushcart Prize. She is the director of creative writing at UC Davis and lives in Colorado near the headwaters of the Rio Grande.
